The Son         Philipp Meyer, the acclaimed author of American Rust, returns with The Son: an epic of the American West and a multigenerational saga of power, blood, land, and oil that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family, from the Comanche raids of the 1800s to the to the oil booms of the 20th century. Harrowing, panoramic, and deeply evocative, The Son is a fully realized masterwork in the greatest tradition of the American canon—an unforgettable novel that combines the narrative prowess of Larry McMurtry with the knife-edge sharpness of Cormac McCarthy.[该内容由Taobao.com乐读书屋提供]

Philipp Meyer grew up in a working class neighborhood in Baltimore. His mother is an artist; his father taught college science for twenty years after working variously as a cabinet maker, electrician, and art installer. The neighborhood, Hampden, had been hit hard by the collapse of various heavy industries, and crime and unemployment were high. Meyer attended city public schools until dropping out at age 16 and getting a GED. He spent the next five years working as a bicycle mechanic and occasionally volunteering at Baltimore’s Shock Trauma Center.
At age 20, he began taking classes at a variety of colleges in Baltimore and decided to become a writer. He also decided to leave his hometown, and at 22, on his third attempt at applying to various Ivy League colleges, he was admitted to Cornell University. He graduated with a degree in English and a mountain of debt and headed for Wall Street to pay off his student loans.
After getting a job with the Swiss investment bank UBS, Meyer did training in London and Zurich and was assigned to a derivatives trading desk. After several years at UBS, he’d paid off most of his student loans and decided to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. When his savings ran out he took jobs as an emergency medical technician and construction worker. He was preparing for a second career as a paramedic when he was admitted to the MFA program at the Michener Center for Writers in Austin, TX. While attending grad school he continued to do emergency medical work, driving to New Orleans just as Hurricane Katrina hit and working as an EMT during that storm.
Meyer was a Guggenheim Fellow in 2010 and a Dobie Paisano Fellow that same year. He is an avid outdoorsman and splits his time between Austin, Texas and New York.[该内容由Taobao.com乐读书屋提供]
